Discover the far flung island chain of the Outer Hebrides on a self-drive discovery tour. This remote archipelago off Scotland's west coast is packed with incredible beaches, wildlife-watching opportunities, and fascinating historical sites dating back to Neolithic times. Undertake an island-hopping adventure from the mainland to Barra, in the southern reaches of the archipelago, through the Uists, and north to Harris and Lewis before returning to the mainland. Explore the unique Hebridean landscapes and traditions; from beaches washed by crystal clear surf and bordered by wildflower-strewn dunes, to centuries-old standing stones, and local fishing and crofting communities linked to the land. Spend evenings sampling local cuisine and planning the next day's adventure with our carefully curated information pack brimming with expertise.
